One of the most frequently asked questions regarding records is, "What is a record and how long do we keep it?" If you're one who's looking for this answer, here's what you need to know. It's our District policy to follow the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) schedules of records retention. For records related to school districts such as academic records, use Schedule SD. For local government records like payroll and accounts payable, use schedule GR.You should become familiar with the records in your area of responsibility and follow the required procedures for retaining them. If you need help finding a particular record type or determining which type of record a particular document is, call us and we will be glad to assist.
